Peg WalshIsland life… it’s what we all want. And it’s what UltraVilla’s St Barth villa expert, Peg Walsh, has. She lives on the replica watches island for six months each year, knows everyone and everything and has lazy days in tropical luxury down pat. In fact she’s there right now. We caught up with Peg to find out her top tips for St Barth this summer. 

WHEN NIGHT FALLS “Toast the sunset at the magnificent restaurant Bonito with an exotic cocktail or a glass of Sancerre blanc (my favourite), then watch as Gustavia morphs into a sea of twinkling lights.”

DRINK UP AT “Baz Bar on the harbour at Gustavia. Enjoy live music (from 9pm), exquisite cocktails, good sushi and an up-for-it crowd.”

GET YOUR SEA, SAND AND SUN AT “St. Jean Beach. For beautiful people, water sports, seaside lunches, and to watch the small planes take off and land on the island’s notorious little landing strip, just adjacent, this is your place to be and where I go on lazy Sunday afternoons.”

EAT SUNDAY BRUNCH BY “the pool at the Le Toiny hotel. A sumptuous buffet, 5 star service and a stunning view are all part of the experience at its Le Gaïac restaurant. We’ll be pleased to reserve a poolside table for you.”

Thanks Peg!
